“I am a corporate attorney that understands business and provides practical advice and creative solutions to clients.”
Megan focuses her practice on business and corporate law, including mergers and acquisitions, asset purchases, stock/membership interest purchases, business formation and dissolution, employment agreements, and general contractual matters. She also counsels clients on both individual and business taxation, focusing on tax incentives for businesses and business owners. Prior to joining Howard & Howard, Megan was a consultant at a Big 4 public accounting firm where she focused her practice on corporate and pass-through entity taxation as well as large, multinational mergers and acquisitions. She has advised clients throughout a variety of industries, including automotive, manufacturing, and healthcare.
In addition to her public accounting experience, much of Megan's corporate knowledge comes from her role as a legal advisor and active member of her family’s second-generation automotive manufacturing business. She is uniquely qualified to address the multitude of business, legal, and tax challenges that come with running a multigenerational, privately held company.
Megan also focuses on a variety of tax issues and tax incentive programs. She serves on the Firm's Opportunity Zone (OZ) Team and advises investors, business owners, and developers on how they can utilize this new tax program to their advantage. Megan also has extensive experience with state tax incentive programs, both in Michigan and other states. Her experience also includes federal tax incentive programs, such as New Markets Tax Credit, Low Income Housing Tax Credit, and Historic Preservation Tax Credit.
Megan stays abreast of new developments in tax law and is presently focused on counseling clients on COVID-related stimulus programs such as the PPP and Employee Retention Tax Credit.
